    Microsoft reached another two milestones when it unveiled its annual financial results last week. First, as ZDNet noted, its annual revenues passed $100bn for the first time. Second, its $110.4bn turnover was not only bigger than IBM's, it was bigger than IBM's has ever been.

    But I'm sure the Softies are not going to get complacent about that: Microsoft will also know that it has already been overtaken by a much younger firm: Google. (Technically, the company is now called Alphabet.) Worse, Google is still growing faster than Microsoft, though the success of Microsoft's Azure cloud may yet keep it in the hunt.
